Assessment of student achievements includes mid-term and final assessments, the sum of which is the final grade (100 points). The mid-term and final assessment includes an assessment component(s) that define(s) ways/means of assessing a student's knowledge and/or ability and/or competencies (oral/written exam, oral/written inquiry, homework, practical/theoretical work, etc.). The evaluation component combines a variety of assessment methods (test, essay, presentation, practical/theoretical assignment, working in a group, participating in a discussion, solving a case, participating in a mock trial, etc.). 


 

Each form and component of the assessment has a specific share of the final grade (100 points), which is reflected in the specific syllabus and communicated to the student at the beginning of the semester. Credit may not be granted using only one form of assessment (mid-term or final assessment). Student credit is granted only in case of a positive result.

  • (A) Exceptional - 91-100 points of assessment;
  • (B) Very good - 81-90 points of maximum grade;
  • (C) Good - 71-80 points of maximum grade;
  • (D) Satisfactory - 61-70 points of maximum grade;
  • (E) Sufficient - 51-60 points of maximum grade;

In case a student receives FX in the programme learning component, an additional exam will be assigned at least 5 calendar days after the announcement of the final exam results.
